Stuttering video or no video using media player

    The first frame repeatedly displays while the sound continues normally. The
    video doesn't progress....only the first frame is flashed. These videos are
    mostly avi files and were saved in 32 bit xp. I'm using 64 bit vista.
    Pictures do not display in the gallery either. Double clicking a pic brings
    up a black area where the pic should be. Dvd movies do not display in media
    player but will function normally using media center. I've installed 64 bit
    drivers for all the components I'm using and haven't downloaded any third
    party software or drivers yet. I'm running vista and nothing else (this is a
    new installation....finally got it loaded last night) Does anyone else have
    this problem or a solution?

  2. Many 64 bit drivers are notorious for being very buggy which is why
    most people don't use 64 bit anything unless they absolutely have to.
    Its simply too early. If you must be on the cutting edge you must
    accept things are less stable. Developers will work on and optimize 32
    bit drivers first. Sorry, but that's just how it is.

    You're also mixing apples and oranges. When you're talking about a
    video or still images the number of bits means the file's color depth.
    When you are talking 32 bit verse 64 bits in a operating system that
    refers to how big a gulp of code the CPU can handle at one time. Two
    totally different animals.
